Started Birds (5 & 6 Weeks Old)

If you lack the facilities to raise chicks from day old, or simply want the security or convenience of starting with older birds, we offer layer breeds of chickens as started birds.

Price Lists are available at the feed store or from our office.

Please see the Price List for minimum orders per breed and age.

Ready-to-Lay, Red Sex-Link (RTL)

The Red Sex-Link is the best layer and the one most grown for ready to lay pullets. She will produce the most eggs for the least amount of feed. They are well suited for small farmers or hobbyists who allow the pullets/hens to free range.

For customers who are not concerned with maximum egg production and would like a colourful variety of breeds for your small flock..

Please note: a minimum of 6 birds must be ordered for delivery.

Beak Trimming

Day-old chicks can be beak trimmed on request. We do not recommend beak trimming White Rock chicks due to their rapid growth and shorter life span. We cannot assume responsibility if higher mortality (starve-outs) is experienced with beak-trimmed chicks..

We do not beak trim turkeys, ducks or pheasants..

Started and Ready-to-Lay are infrared laser beak treated at day old to prevent picking and egg breakage. Beak treatment still allows the hens to “scratch” feed or range.


Vitamin packs without electrolytes are helpful to get baby chicks and turkeys off to a good start.

Multivitamin packs with electrolytes are helpful to chickens and turkeys experiencing stress such as high outdoor temperatures, large temperature fluxuations, poor air quality,

Hatching Eggs

Hatching eggs are available by the dozen in any one of these breeds – Leghorn, Red Sex-Link, Black Sex-Link, Red X, Columbian Rock X, Rhode Island Red, Barred Plymouth Rock and Frey’s Special Dual Purpose. Red X, Red Sex-Link, Black Sex-Link and Frey’s Special Dual Purpose are easily sexable. All other breeds are difficult to sex.
